Purple Heart is super easy to grow in sun or part sun and requires very little water. It looks great as ground cover or sprawling over a wall. The picture below was taken last November.
Purple Heart is hardy in zones 8 - 11. In Zone 8, where I live, Purple Heart normally dies back during the winter months, but comes back from the roots in the spring. Of course, this winter was so mild it hardly died back at all.
With everything Purple Heart has to offer, it's hard to believe it could be topped, but check out this Variegated Purple Heart.
The variegation ranges from dark purple to light purple and pink, with cream and green thrown in for good measure.
The Variegated Purple Heart is a welcome addition to my garden. Hopefully, it will be a fast grower. I have a feeling I'll be taking lots of cuttings of this fabulous plant.
